Ah, OK.

    sortm always issues a warning for each message that is missing a
    "Date:" field, has a "Date:" field that cannot be parsed, or has a
    format error in any header field.  With the -check switch, sortm
    inhibits all modifications to the folder if there are any such
    messages, and exits with non-zero status.  With the default of
    -nocheck, sortm sorts messages with a missing or invalid "Date:"
    field using their file modification times.


Cheers, Ralph.
